Mother Jones cover

IAS faculty member Lauren Berliner’s collaborative research with Nora Kenworthy was cited in the cover story of the most recent edition of Mother Jones magazine.  The feature, entitled “Go Fund Yourself: Begging for health care in the new safety net,” draws on Berliner and Kenworthy’s finding that online marketing skills correlate with income, thus reproducing social inequality in social media fundraising environments.  Berliner and Kenworthy’s original research was published in “Producing a worthy illness: Personal crowdfunding amidst financial crisis.”
